Freckly Humdinger

This cream-toned flower button is cause for some uncertainty with its bespattered surface of tiny brown flecks. I can't decided if they were caused by an external spray of some kind or if they're true to the original make of the button. One thing for sure is that these freckles aren't going to be rubbed out any time soon (though turpentine and a blowtorch might do the trick). While this button does test positive for Bakelite, it's the only Bakelite button I own that's as freckled as a Scottish Boy Scout.
